Innovation doesn’t happen in a vacuum. If you want to experiment, explore and ultimately transform your business, you need a few things first.
To start, credibility with your peers on the C-suite — and you only get that by delivering flawless performance and availability, month after month.
Second, you need time and budget to devote to innovation — and when 78% of IT budgets go on “run the business” activities, that’s easier said than done.
Finally, you need IT operations that can keep up with your ambitions: to scale and adapt to the innovations you want to deploy.
The message is clear: if you want to innovate, you need to optimise your operations first.
